What is the fuel pressure when it doesn't want to start?

Check fuel pressure and if it holds too plus how fast it can build up. IDK - at the age just some the last plug to the fuel pump the grease and rubber could be gone and give it fits like that.


Easy if not running well and really if you checked and only got 24 MPG mostly HWY driving it wasn't running well/properly you are hurting the converter if not too late now?
Isn't the 3.1 V6 the most used engine in this?
